In this year 2016, the macaws (Ara macao) of the NATUWA Sanctuary perform a great breeding task, ten young chicks are almost ready to leave their artificial nests and take flight with their parents.

Unfortunately, deforestation contributes to the loss of natural nests. Artificial nests are installed on top of trees to be used by the limpets as an alternative, although they prefer to make use of the hollows provided by nature in palm trees, ash trees, guanacaste and others.

Environmental education in the community of Aranjuez, Pitahaya and others is vital for these young macaws to continue their natural process of adaptation to the environment. They are proudly being protected by these communities.
